NEW YORK (WABC) – A small helicopter drone flying high above buildings on the East side of Manhattan crash landed just feet away from a businessman during the Monday evening rush hour.
Video he recovered from a memory card in the crash debris shows the drone twenty to thirty stories above the busy streets and crowded sidewalks near Grand Central Station.
The businessman reached out to Eyewitness News saying he thinks the 3-pound drone could have seriously injured him had he taken a direct hit.
He called police who took a look at the drone video, but did no further investigation because they said no law was broken.
The Eyewitness News Investigators is looking into this and will have more on the Manhattan drone tonight at 5:30 on Channel 7.
